Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has now released the new Xbox One X update for Middle-earth: Shadow of War, providing various enhancements that take full advantage of the newly released console’s engine. As part of this update, Middle-earth: Shadow of War allows players to enjoy an immersive, true 4K and HDR (High Dynamic Range) gaming experience for Xbox One X. Once the update is downloaded, gamers can choose from two enhanced modes that Shadow of War offers for the console.
The first option focuses on the resolution with increased texture detail, targeting native 4K. The second option focuses on overall quality with increased draw distances, improved shadow and lighting conditions, increased vegetation, improved ambient occlusion, higher polygon counts and texture filtering improvements, all optimised for the Xbox One X.
Middle-earth: Shadow of War is also an Xbox Play Anywhere title, allowing players to purchase the digital version of the game through the Xbox Store or Windows 10 Store, then enjoy Shadow of War on the Xbox family of consoles or Windows 10 PC. Therefore, gamers can bring all saves, game add-ons and achievements with them to both Xbox One and Windows 10 platforms at no additional cost.
